It's a little lonely in here
Oh, well....maybe a few of you will drop by and offer some advice. The room is now at lockup, and I now need to determine my front stage design and screen selection. This leads me to outline some of the kit I have or am planning to use within the room.
I am looking at purchasing an AT screen from OZTS. I was originally considering an A-lens setup, but will commence with zooming as it looks like 4k or 4k lite should be reachable for me in the next 12 - 24 months. I currently run an EPSON TW-9000. It will be basically 5m from lens to screen. The screen size I am thinking of is 140" 2.37:1 scope.
The front speaker system is all active with L+C+R being handled by http://sgraudio.com.au/products/convex/cx4f.html
In addition to the front floor standers, I currently have one submersive for sub duties looking to add an additional to solve any major bass issues the room may have.
The room is cabled for an 11.x active system, I am currently only looking to add 4 x seaton sparks for rear and surround back to have a 7.2 system. Unfortunately Mark is out of the current spark so I am waiting on his new design to be released.
So as to advice. With the SGR tweeter already set at my ear height should I just carpet the room and forgo the front stage or do I raise the level by adding the stage (sand filled) to increase isolation for the subs and the fronts.
Also with the size of the screen my eyes will be about 6-8cm above the 1/3 lower line of the screen, I am yet to test this fully, but feel I should be able to handle the screen size. Depending on room modes, etc I am looking to have my seating row from around 3.1m - 4.2 m from the screen based on best audio and video compromise.
Next issue to figure out will be acoustic treatment plans, I'll save that topic for later
